Darjeeling Happy Valley FTGFOP Grade 1 Blend of 1st and 2nd Flush Loose Leaf Quality Black Tea

It is found just 3 miles north of the city of Darjeeling. Originally called Wilson Tea Estate after the Englishman, David Wilson, who founded it.

In 2008, hand-rolled tea from Happy Valley was offered for sale by both Harrods and Mariage Freres, in Paris.
